Presentation 1 – ISO45001 v OHSAS18001
ISO 45001 will replace OHSAS 18001 and in doing so, will become the international ISO standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.
Richard Clarke will guide you through the fundamental differences between the two standards, providing focus for those of you who will be involved in the transition to the new standard.
Presentation 2 - ISO14001:2015 Transition From Experience
ISO14001, the international ISO standard for Environmental Management Systems, went through a change in structure and content in 2015 similar to that of ISO9001 and the forthcoming change from OHSAS18001 to ISO45001. In each case, companies already accredited to the previous management standard iteration have a 3-year period to make the transition. For practitioners, knowing the differences in the standards is one thing, but knowing how to make the transition in practice, and in particular where to make a start, is quite another.
Linda McGravey and Andy Robertson will share their experience at Johnson Matthey of successfully going through the transition process from the 2004 to the 2015 version of ISO14001 and will call on the audience to share their experiences also. What went well? Perhaps as or more importantly, what didn’t and what were the lessons learned?
